This ANZAC biscuits recipe is easy to make and a traditional way to commemorate ANZAC Day or to enjoy on any other day.

The first ANZAC biscuits were made by women on the home front and sent overseas to the New Zealand and Australian soldiers fighting in World War 1.

They were originally called ‘Soliders Biscuits’ and contained just flour, sugar, milk powder and water to help them last the long journey at sea before reaching the troops.

Now the biscuits are more of a treat with the addition of butter, golden syrup and desiccated coconut.

ANZAC Day is commemorated on 25 April and is an annual national holiday observed in both New Zealand and Australia.

  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of (baking) soda
